Annual Conference Registration

About the Conference

While COVID-19 continues spreading across the world, the Society for Mathematical Biology is keeping the health and safety of our members as our top priority. To reduce or slow the spread of infection, we will hold our 2021 Annual Meeting in a virtual form between June 13-17, 2021. We acknowledge that many are facing challenging personal and/or professional circumstances, but we hope that our virtual Annual Meeting will allow our community to stay connected, share research, and support each other.

  • General Support: Contribute to support the participation of young mathematical biologists at this meeting. The COVID-19 pandemic is seriously impacting the finances of research and higher education, and academic societies. We need your help, because every young mathematical biologist requires our support and the opportunity to participate in our annual meetings. Thank you for considering joining us in this virtual Annual Meeting, and your support for mathematical biology.

  • Apply for a fee waiver: We invite high school students, undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs to apply for a registration fee waiver if attending the conference would constitute a hardship without financial support.

Academic faculty & industry employees, sign up today for an SMB membership to reduce the registration fee!
